South korea

South Korea is an highly educated, sophisticated country full of rich history, national parks, culture and is home to one of the world's largest cities— Seoul. Considered a model of successful economic growth, Koreans work long hours and have the world’s highest percentage of adults with post-secondary education (83%).

The national church in South Korea numbers nearly 3 million believers and sends hundreds of missionaries around the world to plant churches and set up Bible training centers.

Young people are at a critical juncture in Korea. Increased affluence and a low birth rate have created a coddled generation that feels greater pressure than ever to meet extremely high expectations.

Prayer Needs.

  • There is a notable cooling of spiritual fervour in the younger generation. Some state that Christianity is actually declining among young people. Pray for a new awakening that will particularly impact young people.
  • Pray for more workers among university students. There are 3.6 million students in 408 universities.
  • Pray that these young people may be at the forefront of missions – by going, praying or giving. Mobilization of young people for missions keeps gaining momentum.
